security team, it is considering asking senator john kerry to serve on the team and the fbi agent was barred from taking part in the case for allegedly sending shirtless pictures of himself to a woman involved in the case. meanwhile, the ghost writer of broadwell's book, vernon loeb, says he was clueless about the affair between petraeus and broadwell. here with the latest on the scandal that keeps getting bigger and more bizarre, cnn's pentagon correspondent barbara starr and intelligence correspondent, suzanne kelly. welcome back to you both. >> thank you. >> when we talked on friday night, it was all just breaking and it seemed a relatively straightforward scandal but none of us thought it would stay that way, and sure enough, tonight, a really bizarre twist. it's not john kerry possibly becoming defense secretary, nothing bizarre about that at all. what is bizarre is this revelation in the "wall street journal" and it's reported there, we haven't independently corroborated this, that apparently the fbi agent originally detailed to investigate this scandal ended up sending shirtles

. republicans are still blasting the white house response to that attack. i'll talk to senator john mccain in a minute. >>> in new york city, president obama meets with storm survivors where more than 25,000 households are still without power. more than two weeks after super storm sandy hit. >>> we begin with the big story. the latest on the benghazi hearings. joining me is pentagon correspondent barbara starr and intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly. welcome to you both. barbara, this is really fascinating me. so general petraeus who has been at the center of this huge scandal tomorrow morning will testify at a congressional hearing about benghazi, and your information from a very good source, i think is really, really significant. it's basically, i have been listening to you for the last couple of hours, petraeus basically says he knew the moment this happened that it was a group called answar al sharia and that after that there was a stream of other intelligence saying it may be linked to the video we all knew about but his belief was always that it was this group and they ha

. and i have great respect for john mccain and lindsey graham, because i consider them friend, and they are right this needs to be investigated 100%, and very, very serious, but it is different from saying that there was an intentional misrepresentation, and i don't understand attacking ms. rice, the ambassador who was telling the truth that she believed at that time which turned out to the be wrong. >> and on the anderson cooper's show, it was very similar circumstances with wmds and that had more catastrophic circumstances you could say. so it is a rocky path to whom you are going to choose to defend and not defend is serious. >>> the judgment to put ambassador rice on the television shows without having all of the facts was a judgment that the white house made and president obama has it right if there was a criticism to be made, it was in the judgment in retrospect, but certainly, i don't understand impugning the sincerity for doing what ambassador rice is there to do and speaking what she was told to say. >> and someone who obviously operated with president clinton through a very we

position that they're just going to do whatever the president wants. i think john boehner was very clear that everything is on the table with respect to revenue reductions -- revenue increases as well as spending reductions, but there are certain things that aren't. and i think what john boehner said is right, we should not be increasing tax rates on businesses in america. so i think you're going to look at it from the standpoint of can we tighten the tax code, limit deductions? there are things we can do to simplify the code that will result in more revenue because it will result in more growth. i think republicans absolutely should put those things on the table and revenue shercertainly should be part of the deal. >> some people are blaming you for mitt romney's failure, and i'll explain to you why. >> i wish i had such power here that i could be blamed for these things. >> allow me to elaborate. what they're saying is if he hadn't been pushed into fairly right wing quite extreme positions in his battle against the likes of you early this year for the public nominee race, then he would

, titillating headlines. a second general today, petraeus' successor in afghanistan, general john allen, a marine corps four star general, current nominee to be the new nato supreme allied commander, so a very big fish indeed in the military. he is apparently at the center of a scandal involving 30,000 documents, all pages or e-mails or whatever that he exchanged with this second woman, the other other woman, jill kelley. what do we know about the content of this? because it's not as simple as simply 30,000 e-mails, right? >> well, that's the real question. what's really involved here. the spin machine is in full cycle on this one. the pentagon says it's about 30,000 pages of documents. they may not all be e-mails, but a good portion of them are e-mails between allen and jill kelley. pentagon official telling reporters today in his words, they may have been inappropriately flirtatious. what does that mean? well, the word on the street is that he might have written some of these e-mails and maybe in some cases called her sweetheart. nothing more meant by it, we're told, than he's a virginia

the sunday shows, where she is now being grilled by john mccain and others. i'm talking to him in a few minutes. so it's very significant i think what general petraeus believed at the time. it does beg a belief, really, why would ambassador rice go on national television, having had a briefing we believe from the cia, which turned out to be flawed if the director of the cia right away knew this was an al qaeda affiliated group? >> yeah, you know, it's washington, isn't it. i mean, you know, the theory, what petraeus is expected to talk about is he had his talking points. he got them declassified, approved to go out there in public. when ambassador rice started talking from her talking points, this included other information that wasn't exactly what the cia thought might be really going on. i think some members of capitol hill have brought it down to this point, was the obama administration incredibly incompetent or did they mislead congress, or did they just simply not know. probably it's a little bit of all three. >> let's turn to suzanne kelly. the fascinating thing again today wa

guys like john mccain and hatch have to run far to their right just to keep their offices. this is very perilous for our country. i'm looking for us to go back where you had guys like ronald reagan and tip o'neill who reached across the aisle. >> friends in the newt gingrich second term worked very well together. >> i think we have the right president for that. but we need the right leadership coming out of congress that's going to rise up to the challenge and bring our nation together. most of us in the country are not on the margin. most of us, however we identify, republican or democrat, we have so much more in common than we do apart. that's where we hope that our government will follow where the people are. >> that's so true. cory booker, great to see you. better luck on the ground. appreciate you coming in. >>> coming up next, how the republican party lost a battle. we'll go head to head on that question. questions from bing elections. do you know where your polling place is? maybe somewhere around my house. mine's just, right over that way. well you can find out exactly wher
